Azienda Agraria Scacciadiavoli

Sagrantino di Montefalco 2013

The wine delivers aromas of ripe red fruits like black cherry and raspberries. It has strong notes of vanilla, cinnamon, and other smoked aromas. In the palate you can feel the tart red fruit flavors mixed with vegetal notes of green pepper and other herbal flavors.

It is one of Central Italy's most tannic wines. A ver interesting and recommended bottle! 🍷

About the producer: "Azienda Agraria Scacciadiavoli is an estate in Umbria situated in the wine producing region of Montefalco. It has been owned by the Pambuffetti family since 1954.

The name "Scacciadiavoli" stems from the words "scacciare", meaning to banish, and "diavoli", the Italian word for devils. This unusual name can be traced back to an 18th century exorcism of a woman, whereby she was given red wines as a means of expelling the demon from her body."
Cheers to Italy! 🍷

Seems like this used to be better. Maybe it’s just 2018. Or that it’s now sold in the supermarket? — 11 days ago

Montioni

Montefalco Sagrantino 2016

A deep inhale of cedar and tabac.

A touch of saline with great fruits here, mulberry, dark raspberry, alpine strawberry. Some heft to the body, and a completely beautiful integration of the tannins from the grape skin contact, the oak tannins, the persimmon acidity. Hints of coffee linger.
This is a philosophical wine, one to really think about. Love these.

Montefalco Sagrantino 2007

I took a long time, but this was excellent tonight. Tannins are firm. Very dry, herbal, earthy and savory. Excellent with smoked chicken and babaghanoush. — 17 days ago

Great stuff we have some '10, but also the single vineyard 'Chiusa di Pannone' for '07.

Tabarrini

"Colle Grimaldesco" Montefalco Sagrantino 2008

The Tabarrini Montefalco Sagrantino ages 18 months in casks, 18 months in small barrels and 18 months in the bottle before its release. This is an absolute minimum to tame its tannines. The wine is dark, dense and a mouthful! Its firm structure is accompanied by cherry, plum, and black berry. Age worthy still! — 24 days ago
